Gibraltar - can you see anything in less than an hour?

Jump to last reply

Looking for help please! We will be in Marbella this summer and will be out on a boat for a half day (looking for dolphins, swimming, seeing Gibraltar from the sea etc). If we want we can add on an extra hour or so and land on Gibraltar. The person I am booking the boat trip with says there’s not much point in adding on Gibraltar for so little time, and I’m wondering if you agree.

I’m Irish, so get to the UK a lot, and Marks & Spencer, chip shops, sterling etc are not novelties for me. It does seem a shame to be so close to the rock and not visit it, but the only thing that really attracts me I suppose is the idea of seeing the apes. However we are going with our daughter (age 6) and I am not sure whether she would love them or find them terrifying.

So:

If we don’t add on Gibraltar we will have a really relaxing morning and will still see the rock of Gibraltar from the sea.

If we do add it on, we arrive back a little bit later than I would have hoped so our day will be mostly taken up with this trip. Will it have been worth it for less than 1 hour on the rock? What is there to see just when you get off the boat? (for example, if the monkeys are all a 40 minute trek from the docking station, that would make my decision for me as the only real reason I’m thinking of it is to see the monkeys…)

Thanks a million for your help

Jane
